Thrillist, the website obsessed with everything that’s worth caring about in food, drink, and travel, has created a DMV Burger Map based on the D.C. Metrorail map, that features great burger joints close to each Metro stop in the DMV.

In Alexandria, they mention Mason Social for Braddock Road Metro, Jackson 20 for the King St-Old Town Metro stop and Ted’s Montana Grill for the Eisenhower Ave Metro stop (although Foster’s Grille is better in the Eisenhower Valley IMHO).

What do you think of the list?
